    Kousaka’s too lucky. He deserves less luck, the bastard… but if he wasn’t with her, Saki wouldn’t be there, so I guess it balances out. I guess.

    I almost fell out of my chair after Saki’s “We’re gonna F&$@ like bunnies!” comment. xD

    Err… considering her engrish in the previous episode when she wanted Kuchiki out of the way… Still it is Ayako Kawasumi, ready for her to surprise us :P

    Kohsaka never said that. It was a bad dream by Saki.

    Of the characters I plain don’t care for in this series, Kohsaka is number 1 because he has no place in a show that’s supposed to be about self-referential otaku fun-poking as he doesn’t even remotely fit the profile of any real otaku. He’s just there to provide random acts of plot. Number 2 is Kuchiki because he adds nothing except an eyesore, is never funny, and generally detracts from the show. Number 3 is Saki, who was my first most hated in the first season due to being ludicrously miscast in this show, her shallowness and general hatefullness towards a bunch of harmless guys who tried to get along with her. However, she’s shed the malisciousness and is less shallow in the current season so she gets “demoted” to 3rd most hated becuase she’s still bizzarely out of place in a show about otaku.

    What’s wrong with having a few non-otaku characters in the series?

    Genshiken is precisely what is it thanks to Saki, who may say otherwise but she still does have a large contribution in to making the club in to what it is now.

    Kuchiki is… well, I will agree with that. But he still has some redeeming factors.

    As for Kohsaka… yeah, he’s out of this world, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a place in a show about otaku’s. You’re just trying to enforce your own ideals on to a world which operates precisely on NOT following ideals.

    Genshiken is awesome as it is now. If you were to ask me to remove any character in the series, I’ll probably not be able to name one.

    Kuchiki may be extreme but I know a couple of people who act like that. Really. Even in front of other people. I do admit I don’t like the character… as long as they keep his presence to a minimal accepted amount then it should be okay. ^_^;

    Kohsaka is simply an otaku who had the benefit of being born with a pretty face and decided to take care of himself instead of gorging on burgers and shakes on the couch while watching anime.

    Maybe the reason why people find him annoying is that they think that since he looks good that he should be more considerate and kind instead of having a regular otaku personality. Again, I have a couple of friends who’re about the same so I can’t say it’s impossible. They can pull off dressing as girls too. O_o;

    Saki is the group’s link to the ‘real world’. She preaches common sense about things that dedicated otaku rarely have time to learn (fashion, dealing with other people and relationships, gaining confidence in doing stuff you’re not used to doing, etc).

    Even if someone likes anime, manga, and games, they DO often have friends that don’t quite share the same interests, right? Right? o_o

    If a girl likes a guy enough (or vice versa) he/she will often tolerate and even try out interests and hobbies of the person they like even if they initially hated it and they might eventually find some or part of it acceptable. It doesn’t have to be anime, it could be bad habits, interest in cars, too much interest in work, or any other thing that a person can be obsessed with.

    I’d have to say that I probably like Saki’s character the best in the second season though I initially found her annoying in the first. ^_^
